Site Url is not properly formed in Powershell? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've been trying to add files to a site on SharePoint Online via PowerShell

    $SiteUrl = Get-SPOSite https://company.sharepoint.com/site1

    However, every time i run the script i get this error:

    Get-SPOSite : The site https://company.sharepoint.com/site1 is not properly formed.

    I have connected to sharepoint with the Connect-SPOService command correctly.

    What is wrong with the url?
    Thanks

    Dearbhla

  • Hello,

    As mentionned by Brian, you should use the "identity" parameter

    I have the same query but even after i use -Identity i get the same error, below is my code

    [DBG]: PS C:\Users\kumar.akshat\Downloads\Paru\Scripts_FindSharePointOnlineSiteDetails\Scripts_FindSharePointOnlineSiteDetails>> Get-SPOSite -Identity $website.Url
    Get-SPOSite : The site https://home500.sharepoint.com/Office365Learning is not properly formed.

  • Make sure you first use Get-SPOSite to make sure the site you are trying to connect to is in there. For me I was trying connecting to site that I thought was off my root SC but it was not.
